Berlin has a great amount of restaurants. I live now in Prenzlauer Berg and I have been in some restaurants already. But 2 weeks ago, I heard of Si An, a very traditional vietnamese restaurant at the Rykestrasse where mostly all dishes are vegetarian and glutenfree. I decided to go there with my old friends from Hamburg and was amazed by the incredible taste of their food.
When my friend Helena decided to visit me from Oslo, I knew we should go to this place. The outside terrace is beautifully decorated with asian lamps and one feel suddenly like on vacation.
I got a non-vegetarian Bun Cha Gio: Warm rice noodle salad with fresh spring rolls with pork, coriander, roasted peanuts mint honey dressing. Delicious and surprisingly huge for 7.80€. Not only was it all fresh but the don't use glutamate.
This place is great for afterwork drinks and food or even a date on a saturday night.
What makes this place even cooler? The service is extraordinary. The waiter saw me and knew already that last time I was there I needed a pillow as I wear shorts and the straw benches aren't so comfy for bare legs and he remembered I don't eat gluten. You wont need to chase a waiter to get their attention here, just a glance and they will be there to make your evening even more special.
I totally recommend you guys to check out this place!
I just got a Fuji xe1 to try as I am lacking a good camera at the moment (Thanks Ailine) But I have still no idea how to use it and this place is a bit dark as well ;) so I apologize for the semi blurry pictures...
